    I see what you're saying.

    If you move 6 > 8 first, then move 5 > 7, I think you will see that it works. That was my point about going from back to front.

    6 > 8 causes 7 to move to 6's position, and 8 to move to 7's 's position. 5 moves to the new 8's position, and 7 moves to 5's position, and 8 moves to 6's original position. 5 and 6 are now in 7 and 8's position. This was intuitive to me, so I never really gave it much thought.

    So it would be like this:

    12 78
    34 90
    56 AB

    After the first move:

    12 86
    34 90
    57 AB

    After the second move

    12 56
    34 90
    78 AB

    Most people aren't that precise about where they want their stuff.

    Another option to start at position 1 and move the tile you want in 1 there, move the tile you want in 2 to that place, etc.. Don't jump ahead, because if you do things will move.

    OK, thanks. I am beginning to see some light at the end of a very dark tunnel. I especially like your suggestion about placing tiles starting at position 1.

    Thanks again, Jim
